Be sure to mark your calendar for the fundraiser, and view the message below from Amber:

Hi my name is Amber Richardson-Lucero, I’m 11 years old and I was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma in April 2020. (RMS) is a rare type of cancer that forms in soft tissue- specifically skeletal muscle tissue or sometimes hollow organs such as bladder or uterus.

RMS can occur at any age, but most often affects children. I am going through chemotherapy every week for 11 months. I have about 8 months left and every 5 weeks I have a 5 days chemotherapy treatment. In August I went through Radiation therapy for 6 weeks, Monday through Friday to help break up and shrink the tumors.

I have a little brother who is 5 and my mom is working at Sapporo’s and taking me to my treatments which I know is stressful for her. I have to do homeschooling this year due to my weakened immune system.

My family is setting up a benefit/fundraiser on Saturday September 26, 2020 at the American
Legion Post 24 in Rock Springs, WY

on. There will also be pulled pork sandwiches Green chili and sloppy joes, baked beans, salads

winners will be announced on the day of the benefit.
